    The opening program of Double Vision juxtaposes two films each by Jean Vigo and Ron Rice. À propos de Nice was Vigo’s first film, an enthusiastic and ambitious city symphony detailing Nice, which Vigo and wife Lydou moved to in late 1928. After meetings filmmakers Claude Autant-Lara and Germaine Dulac, who helped him get work as a cameraman on productions in Nice, Vigo energetically took to planning his own film, enlisting cinematographer Boris Kaufman to stay at their home and shoot the visually intricate and surprising sequences of architecture, animals and the lazy tourists lounging through the beachside city.
